The Christmas Story

Ah, yes… the Christmas story. You may have heard it before: the nativity, the birth of Christ, the “reason for the season.”

Well, with all due respect no matter what your beliefs may be, perhaps you’ll enjoy this retelling of a traditional Christmas tale portrayed alongside some Poptropica imagery…

The Christmas Story: Poptropica Style

So there’s this young couple, Mary and Joseph, and they’re traveling to Bethlehem*, where they’re going to register for the census ordered by the government.ย *totally not Vampire’s Curse Island, by the way.ย Despite being a virgin, Mary’s expecting a child at any moment (the son of God, no less!), but there’s no room for them anywhere, and poor Joseph is trying his best to pull himself together… yeah, life hasn’t been easy for them.


Finally, they find a spot, and Mary gives birth to her son, Jesus. She wraps him in cloths and places him in a manger – quite a humble beginning for the king of kings!

scene2 birth

Out in the fields nearby, there are shepherds watching over their flocks by night. An angel of the Lord appears to them and brings them the good news of the Savior’s birth.

The fluffy-haired shepherd boys decide to go check this out for themselves, and they are duly amazed, so they go out and praise God for all that they’ve heard and seen.

It’s said that some wise men (or “Magi”) followed a star and visited Jesus too, bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh (fancy rich things!). This would’ve been some time after his birth, but we can’t forget them, now can we? So there we have it.

Merry Christmas, everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah,ย the Lord.

?-Hello, my friends. Unfortunally, EL7 was the last of the ELs and was eaten by a large group of sharks with black eyes and chicken pox. However, I can take over this post and many more to come.

Director D-WHHHHYYY!!!??

?-What is wrong, little one?

DD-I lost the elections! Even after my patriotic speech on how Medusa was 2nd worst!

Why you should vote for me, Director D.

Hello, Poptropicans. It has come to my attention that I am currently lagging in the polls behind Medusa.


Elections such as these are about issues, and no issue is more important than a candidate’s appearance. I ask you to consider my perfectly coiffed salt-and-pepper hair, and then look at the hideous mess of wriggling snakes that Medusa calls a hairdo. Or, rather, don’t look at it, because you will immediately turn to stone. That’s the kind of villain she is. I, on the other hand, only want what’s best for you: a sleek, aerodynamic cranial appearance.

I mean, honestly, Medusa? She’s not even the main villain on Mythology Island. Zeus is! Medusa is a miniboss at best. I don’t even think she’s qualified to participate in this election. Until we see her longform boss certificate, we should consider her an illegitimate candidate.

You have one day left to vote in this round. Vote Director D. for best Poptropica villain!

*later in an abandoned garage*
DD-Where am I?
?-Hello, Director Donaldious. I would like to play a game.
DD-What game do want to play?
DD-But I am in Poptropica.
?-Exactly. I can control you at any point. I know your password and username. I can put you in stainless steel straps. I can put you in lonely chambers. โ™ช I can show you the world! Shining, shimering, splended! โ™ช
